Helloo… As I have closed the ‘Cupboard’ for classes and workshops for the forseeable future I decided to set up a YouTube Channel so I could bring you some Witterings from the ‘Cupboard. I wanted to keep in touch with my lovely customers and friends and hopefully I will gain some new ones. I am hoping you will join me in making a ‘Wittering Quilt’ made from scraps of fabrics you have at home.
My first Witter video was uploaded on Youtube on the 18th March and I have since added three more, all with a different block idea!!
If you like my vidoe on Youtube, please click the thumbs up and subscribe to my channel.
I’ll be working from The Therapy Cupboard from tomorrow for the next while. Anyone who wants and feels an essential visit for a quick purchase are welcome to come, (please contact me first)…… BUT I ask you to consider others and the Government guidance we now have in place, where have you been? Who have you been with? Wash your hands, I’ll clean surfaces, handles etc. I’ll reconsider this plan constantly as things develop.
If you are local and in need of supplies but self isolating for whatever reason, please message or call me, I’ll take photos of stock items for you to consider & purchase, I’ll then deliver locally (#wadebridge#bodmin#padstow etc) or post as long as I’m able.
I’d also just like to say, I appreciate your support. I’m just Me. It’s taken many years of hard work and silliness to build my Cupboard Life. I’m going to do everything I can to continue, but like many, these are very uncertain times. All of us small businesses should be appreciating your support just now, we rely on you….. I thank you.
…..Anyway, enough if that!! I shall make myself busy with new designs and will be finishing the next #mysteryquilt BOM ready for kick off in June/July….. it’s a very different design for me, with lots of lushoius #tildafabric !
I’m also going to be bringing you mini videos 😳 (hopefully daily!!) ‘Ramblings in The Therapy Cupboard’ 🤪…… watch this space!!! Me thinks they’re going to be a bit different to the norm…… at least while I figure out what the hell I’m doing!! 😂👍🏻
Obviously if things change for me personally I’ll be shouting very loudly!
I’ll update daily. If in doubt please ask the question. 07940133116
Wishing you all good health and loadsa creativity!!! Abbie xxx

If you would like to join in the fun, learn a new skill, take up an old one, or just to take time for yourself. Classes or drop in’s are flexible, contact me to work something out 🙂
Look what’s coming up this month in the cupboard…..
As well as our regular Beginners hand and machine patchwork classes I will be holding several workshops in the cupbard too!

Designed by Abbie Searle – Finished size 67″ x 52″
I’m going to give you sizes and the order in which to join
your sashings/border and blocks together. Once you’ve done this you should have your
completed quit top, obviously if you want to make any adjustments or addition that’s
totally up to you, but whatever, I’d love to see
photos of all completed projects please!!
I’m not going to give details of how to layer, quilt and bind, I’m going to assume you have the knowledge to do that for yourself. Having said that, please do message me if you need advice.
If any of your blocks are the wrong size when
you get to putting them together, do not worry!!! Add a strip on, take a strip off, it’s what I’ve
done with the original, it’s all good and becomes part of it!

where they are, this is patchwork after all!
